2019 Kia Forte
2019 Kia Forte - a Refreshing New Look
Totally redesigned for 2019, this year's Kia Forte puts the fun back in "compact." Great looks, a choice of six trims - LX MT, LX, EX, EX+, EX Premium, and EX Limited - plenty of creature comforts, and advanced safety features make the 2019 Kia Forte the best compact for the money, on the road today.
What's new in 2019
Kia's tiger-nose grille, more-chiselled and cleaner lines, and full-width LED accent lights make this year's Kia Forte sportier and more appealing than ever. Slightly larger at 8.1 centimetres longer overall, 1.2 centimetres taller, and 1.8 centimetres wider last year's model, this year's Forte offers more legroom, an overall larger cabin, and a bit more trunk space.
Sporty and Loaded with Tech
Redesigned for 2019, this year's Forte makes a bold statement when it comes to sporty good-looks. A silver trimmed tiger-nose grille and gloss-black accents say sporty from the front. Sharp lines, sculpted contours, and 17" machined-finished alloy wheels give this year's Forte an aerodynamic and luxury import look and feel. Inspired by the Kia Stinger, smooth curves and soft angles on the tail add a touch of "athletic" to this year's sexiest mid-size sedan.
Highlights of standard tech and comfort on this year's Forte include - Heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, Bluetooth connectivity, and an eight-inch touchscreen display. The EX Limited and EX Premium trims also get SiriusXM satellite radio and smart cruise control.
All Forte trims come with a 147 HP 2.0L, MPI, Inline 4 cylinder engine coupled with an automatic Intelligent Variable Transmission (manual for the LX MT). The manual LX MT gets 8.6/6.4 L/100km while all other models get 7.7/5.9 L/100km (Highway/City), L/100km.
